    CPU temperatures


    Hello Forum.

    last night my PC suddenly switched off 2 times within 3 hours. I didnt get a BSOD, just switched off.
    I did some googling to get some info, and saw it may be a case of CPU cooler, or fan, dust etc etc.
    I also downloaded some software to see the temp of my CPU cooler, and seems a bit high. i have had
    this CPU cooler for 8 years now.

    on start up the temp was 55c
    and then suddenly rised to 72c, and then reached 77c.

    Apparently ~60C is the max for that CPU, so therefore your temperatures are too high.
    Obviously you need to re fix the CPU cooler, or get a better one.

    Hi Helmut.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm currently looking into a new CPU cooler no more than $100, also replacing the fans too.
    do you have some recommendation which you are pleased with its performance?

    thank you.

    Practically any aftermarket CPU cooler would be better than factory supplied one. Look for anything with 3 pipes or more and at least 120mm fan. Anything that looks like Cooler Master 212Evo. Don't know what you can put your paws on down under so can't say exactly which one to recommend. $100 one would be too much.

    I have these options to buy a CPU cooler here in Australia, Im after a reasonable one to do its job, as Im currently going to built a new PC system within 3 months time I hope. But I'd like to eliminate the problem Im having with high CPU temp. Also Im going to get 2 new fans, because my PC makes noise like construction.

    How old is your computer? Have you peeked inside to see what the dust levels are like?

    This would be a good choice, they also have some of quietest fans https://www.pccasegear.com/products/...-h7-cpu-cooler

    My PC is 9y old.

    Today I blasted the dust out with 2 cans of Fellowes air duster. But the CPU temps is still 73c from what i can see now. And I always take care of the dust once every 3 months, to keep the system as neat as possible.

    Not so expensive for $55! I'll take your word for it then. And make the purchase.

    Thank you.

    Many prefer it over CM 212evo.
